      Any augmentation of numbers which diminished the comfort or increased the toil of the mass would then cause which now it does not immediate and unmistakable inconvenience to every individual in the association—inconvenience which could not then be imputed to the avarice of employers or the unjust privileges of the rich. These families were removed thither twenty-five years ago, because it was thought the land there had a valuable water-power. In every case they have developed among their membership very remarkable business ability, considering their original station in life; they have found among themselves leaders wise enough to rule, and skill sufficient to enable them to establish and carry on, not merely agricultural operations, but also manufactures, and to conduct successfully complicated business affairs. If they want to be like the world, that is the place for them. Each has a garden patch, and keeps chickens; and every year a number of pigs are set apart for each household, according to its number.

Smith has himself appointed chief justice of the city court and lieutenant general of a Nauvoo militia, merging church and state in a thriving theocracy, where Mormons wield political and military might. Once There was The People - it shall never be again! The secrets of these groups are thought to be so profound that only a chosen, well-educated few are able to understand and use them. Keil said, nodding to the women, "They like this work; it is their choice to spend the afternoon thus. On the other hand, when I asked one of the elders how far he believed that their hymns are inspired, he asked me whether it did not happen that I wrote with greater facility at one time than at another; and when I replied in the affirmative, he said, "In that case I should say you were inspired when your words come readily, and to that degree I suppose our hymn-writers are inspired.

      In central Europe, during the Reformation, numerous communistic organizations sprang up, notably the Taborites q. The Aurora colonists labored without money wages; they could economize to the last possible degree in order to tide over a difficult place; they at all times measured their outlay by their means on hand; and I do not doubt that they made Aurora, with its orchards and other valuable improvements, for half what it would have cost by individual effort. Undoubtedly, as a general rule, remuneration by fixed salaries does not in any class of functionaries produce the maximum of zeal; and this is as much as can be reasonably alleged against communistic labor. Surprisingly, this exactly resembles many civilized secret societies.

An angry mob storms the Carthage, Illinois jail where Smith is being held. If any one of our people wanted to train himself in some practical knowledge or skill for the service of the community, and if he were a proper person in stability of character and capacity, we would send him, and support him while he was learning.

In a country where labor is scarce and highly paid, and where the rewards of patient industry in any calling are sure and large, it is not to be supposed that such a society as Aurora would have held together nineteen years if its members were not in every way satisfied with their plan of life, and with the results they have attained under it.

Fruits and vegetables make up the greaterpart of their diet. The first convoy to arrive at the place that will become Winter Quarters divides the camp into wards, plants crops and builds log cabins.
